She is very well-versed in the culture and distinctions of the various communities and neighborhoods in the regions she serves. Whether helping a first-time home buyer or someone looking for a vacation home, Dawn energetically assists her clients searching for the perfect ski/golf resort lifestyle, or a placid lifestyle in the surrounding desert/foothills. She confidently guides her clients through the benefits of each area, helping them locate the perfect setting to support their family and lifestyle needs.
With a long history of customer service and relations, more recently in the field of HOA management, Dawn brings her management skills to the table as she assists her clients throughout the sometimes- complex real estate process. In her career at Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty, she has been awarded a number of accolades including being in the Top 8 in sales for her local office in 2018 and “Quarterly Best” in the second quarter of 2021.
A native of Houston, Texas, and having lived in a number of resort communities across the country, including Lake Tahoe for over 15 years, Dawn has a well-grounded approach, and a penchant for figuring out what is most important to her clients. Dawn feels that “Luxury is not a price point, but a lifestyle,” and she treats all her clients as top priority. Backed by her exemplary brokerage team, this gives her the ability to successfully convey the real estate process and manage the transaction details. Dawn’s depth of experience enables her to anticipate any bumps in the road and to quickly construct solutions to keep the deal moving forward and to negotiate the best possible result. Her belief is whether a client is purchasing or selling a property, what makes a stressful situation truly bearable begins with a great relationship and trust in your realtor.
As an active resident of Incline Village for nearly 10 years, Dawn’s time outside of work is filled with her other passions that Reno, Tahoe, and Carson Valley areas offer, such as: volunteering in the community, exploring with her family, hiking, kayaking, waterskiing, snow skiing, off road excursions in the family Jeep, and road trips along the west coast.
